WHEN AND HOW TO -FILL THE The quality of silag iss deteiniiiied to- a great extent by thb. c6nditio-u of: the maize when cut a nd tile care used: in filling the silo. The question -ot: the proper time to cut maize and store. in the silo has been much discussed and studied. Experience and careful study of results sho.w that the best silage is made from 'maize that is cut and put into the silo at the time the kernel dents-and. begins to harden. At this stage the maize has practically attained maturity(, and its full maturity is do veloped. This, of course, will de pened to some degree on the kind of maize which is grown.

A TERRIBIE SUITOR .By Mrs. Harriett Lewis, Author of "Found Guilty," "The Double Lifr " etc.) CHAPTER XXLX. A GREAT WRONG RIGHTED. The hours succeeding the departure of Thirwall upon his mission of revenge passed drearily enough to Sir Allyn Dare and his daughter. Each was anxious to encourage and inspirit the other, but their hearts were heavy with dread and foreboding.

Ilda did' not leave her father during the day, even to change her attire. As lie complained of being cold, she caused a fire to be kindled in the state drawing-room, and hlie sat near it all the day, seldom stirring except to ac company his family to the dining-room.
